Potentially. About the whole experience all week even at the stadium there's there's there's a peacock an eagle on quite a bit in the stands you know between. Agents and also. Coaches Qian it's Saturday kind of nailed it but now at stories for. Omelet that have been fortunate. So coming up on this Al Gore of double coverage we'll wrap up our I think we permit exhausted or falcon owners New England. Conversation. Will also talk a bit more about the sinks are there all season. Tier fund them. Speaking today on some of the money that New Orleans is going to have to play with. And then Christian you have a chance it down would duke Riley even posted Mike Triplett write in game I'm amiss and anyone. Native Peter. These court pit. It's should look. Did to Jules interest. For both for cutlery that we kind of talked about it uniter at least you did. But you wanna see a product of a Mac can off cents. Israel she battled well NCAA and he talked about.

All right so Qaeda argue never gave me an official vote as to those who you are cheering for. On. On C rules and bird are you abstaining beak is your silent report like do you nugget of broken into conflict of interest. Well there get their could be complicated connect to it really. As them we. We talked the night though ethical conflicts of interest or a thing of the past in America. Your. By the way. Trump hotels. Did you see they're standing by 300%. Over. It in the US taco bill how I'll help. Managed only about a bit of its triple. The matter details states agrees that works out. So to reach your viewers your Greek as you wrote to us I cast my official vote with the Atlanta. Yet doing couple cheering for here at the property. Really cheer for any one. Yeah I. I mean I am to eye on him. You know Natalie cheer against John Connolly twenty and twenty YouTube mobile Chris Rongey gains that's taught Opel but ultimately meant. Located sinister instead of the falcons to win just because I wanna see the reaction from saint elements. And I want to exceed it rule really the legitimize you know like that they'll give him. Credit now teachers lost did make a lot to gain on the referees edited. For Rourke. The patriots or whatever urgency even if they give. The falcons their dues. Some Aqib and I four. Refereeing is potentially cheating to try to keep the game close. Think about it. NFL ratings have been down this year right PS that is because the election. I haven't heard numbers but I think I heard their ratings gap back but. I mean I'm pretty intrigued to see these players offerings like eight out of. In these gains were pretty terrible. When you look at you really only had a couple of exciting playoff games. Roger Goodell is in danger of completely rooting football between bad playoff games in removing franchise. He needs this Super Bowl to be close which means I get the you expect to referees to being gauging a little even mean of the scales. That'll be really you're very troll on the air. And arguably agent at a at a out of that Goodell is. Going to get blamed for Rooney football has a good now the only game what I said that was true. Is that eight out of these team games were crap. For the playoffs. Yeah they were blown out there abroad is terrible candidate and he could divisional round game between Dallas agree bit it was a good one. And she's like camping in development. KG you ever heard so Olson's. What did you 23 says. Team took it to splurge and I get a soft accused BB cute. If he tells the bleachers series from New Orleans shall give free bread putting with rumsfeld's. How to run. It's a way me and daily program. Are you should indicate the to have Bradman. I'm I'm quite sure. That it was. Lauderdale cicada didn't. On what happens iphone's. Radio my weeks ago I think Euro for the night did you hear about it retired from the job. I think eating broccoli eating plan not a like quiet. Rhetoric about. Arabia and I get distracted some times your personal hygiene would lead me bleed your heat. In general I plan. So much my mistake I pulled. I grow a beard and so you know day. Yarder in the beard I get it and trust me I'm flattered. Thank you. Another. Bowl. The you know we Greek idea you're right nothing but thank you. They want to petition is sincerest form of flattery thank you for a third time it really does just mean the world me. Well. There are. A good win. We did Acura odor U finalists undervotes because as sort of talks are saints with offseason you know we get back. But this is surprising man won't won't you've guessed. Yet in this in this question of Atlanta versioning and you have how do you devalued and issues. I I figured they would be. Two recorders in favor of the race. So our final tally with our very official. Double coverage signs poll. To endure societies across the world. I just read texts and if they were fable one team together are not sit in the category. Thirteen votes for Atlanta fifteen. Ford nearing. Nearly a dead even in split Christian and I can assure you that there was no voter fraud in the mix. Yes of course I'll never believe they added that it will be. I you know you get polity. Executive orders. Oh to ensure that. I just I just wanna make sure that look I I've been I've been here to talk Christian about may be our crowds are the biggest listen this program. Our audiences and that's a complete lie in fact. All term effects seen that we actually have more listeners on the show. The other night talk show in the world pretty unbelievable. Yeah yeah. Double coverage when we get back. It's all season wouldn't certain do you have three G Terry fun though talked the president did he say anything. We should see grounding your W via Lehman. He edited is ultimately yields on its wars. Is that movement. KG before we talk saints. For a toxic to offseason did you know that the NFL skills. And I've decided to watch it. No I was checking out from time to time in and out on Twitter the seeing him update and so let. So I don't think and reason I was in the pat in competition that actress felt right. But do you know who wanted. It's in the NFC one dog well it looks like five to assume that it missed all of us. Said earlier in the week David BO go for two NFL podcasts. On. Little play. I said earlier in the week that I had a four bigger chance of watching this in the actual probable in. I guess in the end I still distant given to him about probable but like they did skills gently it seems they use one. The SE 152. It looks like was even close to me and and dodge ball. In the procedure in precision as seen competition. Andy Dalton got last place Marty deck press got gal last race. Andy Dalton started slow apparently too strong which seeks team. Drew Brees came on little surprise used the last ago he only got sixteen in the winner. Was results and your team Albers and they would twenty points. Those towns yet so two overs to you know we're rubs me and I Sabrina can be easy sport science buries right. Yeah out accuracy is the the archer. Albers proving that despite. Seven kids he you'd throw a ball I also agree Christian yes. It cannot be overlooked. It. Drew Brees and losing the precision passing skills challenge of the Pro Bowl is a definite signs of decline had just yet he had a a whole field proof piece of evidence that that takes eluded breezes last year ever playing well. In the dead drone drop. Which is all I guess a drone drops footballs to players catch from way up. At the first eliminated then of course because these things always you came down to draw obviously Adrian O'Dell back him. Going back and forth and Odeo of course maybe spectacular catch in depth edging out Jarvis but. Not to be outdone later in the best hands counties in this in this so I guess receivers that delight to mr. Patton hall and a few types of passes. Mike Evans committed to in the minutes and team with a good BJ comes and goes fifty team's point 86. DT Boyd's beads there's like 26 of these guys wrapped up a game and beat. O'Dell. Jarvis the injured our our new. Jarvis put up fifty to six so. Yet they thought I had a couple of BJ won one in the from the. You lie Oden will be created with all of them because they went down Miami's. Before the playoff game Green Bay it's still the reason Kennedy punched a hole in the wall. At Lambeau Field so that's why you lost jerks. Yet that. Yeah it was a lose viewers did Tim is trying to give me decent numbers to obstruct them either. I think somebody about it kind of discussion in the skills challenges that eight MM I really. No I'm missing some sort of joke here nabbed him which ruins pointed music edges. The real the entire show talk apologized to him but it looks at the appeal or she's an antsy more skilled. Do the AFC's so wrong. Falcons. Is that other words. Mean yeah well here's note there exact reason why. On the problems will not gonna say. Chosen to Wear. Their red jerseys for the game. Crow stint. Denver Broncos Wear orange couple years ago. PPP yet. But it to eleven Cadillac. And they got it has yet again they wanna like they wore orange and they got drafted stoves or what was it eleven on. Eleven Cadillac thirteen Super Bowl winners. Are. I have come from where there wagers. Indicators or white. Seen out and out now that's been interesting though because the NFC one's skills challenge so in the push and pull between. One team wearing white jerseys and one coverage when the skills challenge I just don't know which direction ago when trying to predict this game. How it's clear that the Jersey matter more than. A look at fielded play did get minutes yet it's that is the old saying goes. There's not enough sample size from the skill competition to relate to that correlates to. Winners noticeable like there is pitchers. Ha ha OK fair enough but the DNC obviously as we're skilled players which means a better conference but it but he you're sent. All right so Christian parties gays are gonna CBS news update coming up in a minute and a half. And then I say will be in talks to Angel get do you see an alum Mike Triplett and then. Delayed or did you do grown Leo he's been a check coming up and some. Bed owner guy me. I mean. And the corner it's eight yet Yzerman need to your income and up as well Rupert Duquesne on. And indeed where you were part of the group data tier fun you know talked to earlier. I was actually just one old jet pilots spoke to a group today it was less cited Terri our most talked to with. No an icon. Yes so I read the article and it seemed pretty boring and devoid of anything actually import is that is it true. Yes look I got a text I got a text to date from. But like a wee bit carried on now like outlet it now like usually limits. I they use it that he is like. We got a lot of money to blame it emerged cited for free agency throughout their lives. I could I think I mean honestly I don't go against the journalistic ethics and that you could just make a book like that he would have been you would have been off. Yeah now now okay now. That said it did did you D'Amato is money they have just been worried bag maybe talk about how things maybe don't have as much money. Or is much leverage in the streets period as you maybe would have thought. This double coverage to about KG intimidate you now with the year and a good deal. Joseph was going on you know what back double coverage here on to reveal AM FM and dot com T dub it their Christian geared. Hanging out with you here on IR. Did either BO studio ever goes. It's really captures one not. It's okay gee let's talk saints' all seasons so the saints had. Forty. Million dollars in their minds are correct. Yeah. 27%. Capsule right now Korean over the kept Erica on the forty million jobs all adults and nine. Million dollars you've got a big difference right Uga Uga. So now these. Is the problem in here in lies the problem for saints fans is that although that sounds vastly better. And that is vastly better where do you think that nine million rates as far as dead money. Dead last coming in the top. Okay yeah the ball. Being tops in this is that last yes yeah you're you're actually right. Then nine million dollars this seems and it's not even close now may be asked to some other cuts take place. This could change right now Christian it's not even close first off you're only looking at light. You're looking for. Killing of fourteen teams even breaking the million threshold. Single precious single million. So that's a less than half of the league. And then you're only looking at six teams breaking the five million dollar threshold. And then of course the saints' lead by over two million dollars the Redskins at six point nine million. Second place to precinct nine millimeters solar is this offseason weight better. Yes should you be to be checked in the state that their pick of the free agency later no. Because from a relative standpoint. While they are more wealthy it's almost like they're not. Because everybody is I was at its biggest one the positives is Christian that. At least you won't give it priced out unless you're going against the you know analogy going for the most expensive guy like at least you're not having to go bargain bin shopping you can get yeah. Get some. Middle of the road deals. Done much easier this year. Yet it would Cleveland Jacksonville that has like every three million dollars that. 83. If for the dollar slightly larger. And available cap space. Did Tim Timbaland did to temper it. The pointed to go to war even globally and more people won't move. And even cabinet people that this year they got 35 million dollars this year which it's still a lot of money. Other people get their point he's in the terms of the buffer zone with a as the dollar gets yet you write about me what they think they can still play. They just they ticket for the ball. You know they. They still they still learn to read like they did it is funny because people think that like it's still not necessarily regard I greatly managed cap. No it's not clearly when you still eighteen dollar and he's now dead of dead money which you can Jews. It is too a pocket I mean dollars though in improving your defense. It's woods' secret that. Good deal right it would mean. What's also shocking to me he is I'd still like now that I look at nine million dollars leading the league by two million. I mean you east allergy shocked to read in tried to comprehend. How the scenes could remain competitive. Any seller had given sport with forty million dollars in debt money payments or if you want a great hope like kind of a glass half full yet have they still lead their money it's that you being. OK with incredibly. Poor cap situations. So maybe within okay cap situation which is what are described this as. You can be good right David okay with incredibly pour the made two incredibly poor rays have to okay better OK reserve together did anything I say just excess. Somalia. Talents your own justification of it it's navigated. He. Saw the sixteenth whenever that. That world that are there like the five million dollars in debt money coming in those made out this year. Located top five dead money. And in I didn't know him. Cautioning came close it was brass are right now the top five dead money or the browns in these is the only team to the top six he's the only teams breaking 85 million dollar threshold. Browns ravens Eagles Washington and this it's. Yeah I mean right get this out at your sport I mean you see that that phrase in. Hated because four guilty of new repeating. A freeze too often loses it's effectiveness by just because they say in analysts and also people's sakes I character and sport it doesn't mean that it's late. Save a lot don't become numb to desensitized. To relate. In the NFL the main area in which you can gain advantages or have disadvantages put on you by other you know in relation to be competing it's it is in the salary cap. Why did Russell Wilson was breakdown and a million different body pieces. This year well in a cellar Petrov and sport the Seahawks committed the least of any one. They are often the line and you know it was war out. On the field so. Like it continually heart in the fact that forty million dollars is shocking. The seeds are still an agreed spot but they're in a and improve spot. And I'll be intrigued to see and they say it because it felt like Christian do you feel confident saying they're gonna go after at least one big money right back. Oh yeah numbers I don't analyze it right that one big money freeagent. Yeah absolutely I think I think to destroy enemy. So and they don't hit. Can't marry that's the million dollar question can they hear. Yeah I mean I don't know. Timmy who's going to be apparently didn't within all the big part as to how likely they artists. But getting it. I guess we'll find out this is where this is where this reorganization of the profits w.s over the come and play. I can ET album hit back. For today Mike Triplett. Here doldrums WB I imagine that kind. Well I haven't spent a lot of time launch in the goes on the field are certainly talking to people who do that for a living and read what they're saying. And the two guys that I was thinking about writing about heading into the week anyway to sound like they're generating the most buzz and won his Alabama tight end OJ power do. Because he's. You know in the most star power he had the highest draft stock useless to memories first round mocks you walk out his first to tell you see disease giant out there. But he is also really elevated that and I think he's gone from. Definite first rounder to maybe atop after the first rounder just a few days here. Making great catches. In great shape shown some blocking ability. That guy's gonna be a guy who oddly enough to didn't hear much about ballot at Alabama has been using them much but I think he's going to be again it's gonna make waves in about. Yeah I just wrote about today is Cooper cup the exact opposite receiver from eastern Michigan. Who. To set all kinds college records most yards most catches. Most touchdowns ever by anyone in SES RMBS and he's the grandson of a saints all of favorite Jake cup. But you know these guys these small school guys can they do it against this level of competition and by everyone's account yes he absolutely is he's been I think he's probably got the most because of anyone out here to delegate called visas Beasley tight right I mean I just see they get somebody asked him what it is in a rule the FB can still wide receivers had to be prepared other wide receivers. He did play a lot in the slot but he's 61. And 200 pounds so he says he wants me more than Justice Souter but that is definitely made his Forte college. Let's go back to OJ Howard and particularly tight end position would it surprise you at the saints and have drafted a tight in whether it's states. In the first three or four rounds what was that shot because it would. I was surprised they didn't at first round I think because. They just have so many bigger priorities. They've shown an ability to plug in lesser tight ends succeeded them and loss and most recently and they'd invested time in. Wanted to link obviously that. And so loudly because in the much. Fair enough but but looked so that's why I just like public you draft with three or four years in mind you don't just build immediate needs in the draft as the best player available. But I would rank dead so low on the list of immediate needs compared all the defense that needs in the need to rebuild that offensive line and then maybe consider the quarterback position. So I I would love tight and waiting with receiver and running back is and they just they just can't be your top priority with a valuable asset like that they'll be a luxury and more so than Minneapolis solicited doesn't mean if you don't have. Look like when they took Deuce McAllister when they had review it was like if a guy's greatest so high you still take. How would you feel about. That is hypotheticals and this is that this is the land of hypotheticals this time a year but let afford it say he's in their eleventh. What do you do we got Pulitzer for the saints right. I don't think so I had for the same reasons that I just said like. I just feel that way about the running back position in general idea is a bit of saints winning anymore games the last two years and they've taken tiger really bad you know they'd they need impact players on defense so bad. Any offensive linemen so bad for the future. Like I said they would consider quarterback. Running back it's just I mean marching is very good running back Tim meadows are very good backup ray images isn't it's a part time position in New Orleans. And it and they are doing pretty well at depositions he combined those two things that would seem like the ultimate luxury pick from him. You'll see Debbie he held your defense and also helps prolong the life and Drew Brees. Maybe a little bit but that that would have to come along with an entire culture change said you know you're getting better run blockers and you're devoting yourself to the run game and becoming more of a run deep. We've seen after eleven years now we know what the saints do even when they have a good running backs. The running game is secondary for them even Leonard Burnett would play thirty snaps a game get eighteen carries a game even if he's dominant. So maybe in the maybe he has a spectacular great of course it would. Completely stunned me but it like I said feels a field villagers their favorite team. Get out. Where it went when you've had a number one offense and a bottom five defense for so long to take a running back when you're doing okay at that position would would really stuff. I asked general manager may view it was how much thought they give to life after Drew Brees earlier this weekend. Had a pretty good answer but they said they there ultimately worried about now they do think about it how much should they think about that. Well I think they reached a stage. This will be the third year in a row now where they're gonna scout every single one of these guys because it's so they know. That it's mean quarterbacks don't come along that often so there in this window now where. If they find their guy whether that's a first rounder a third round or fourth rounder. It's time to draft to bring into the building and see what they've got even if it's in round when I don't think it would have been a huge shock due to drive to Jerry golf Lester if you started to fall around seven or eight. And now here they are at eleven so they see a guy and they say. I think this the best guy we're gonna have a chance that. For the next few years. They might take them they know the importance of that position but they have not reached a point where they have to do that big boy were they have to do that will be the year after drew retires or leaves. But it did that the window is now open where they're gonna evaluate every one of those guys. And it's now a possibility and every route. Hang in Al Mike Triplett espn.com here on double coverage. LSU players that I know LSU fans this incident a consternation as to why there's not a village there's no I was you play those seats roster you would think with him tells you put out this year. One of those guys get an update in a black ankle uniform because it they fit needs of these opposing I think to play guard I think duke Riley can help you all quality for some football. Yeah but look. I've heard this question so many times over the years is just points as I've put together a chart last year of every when they drafted him like the Loomis. And there's a bit about Ohio State guys kind of constantly in and had there been three Alabama guys I think it's been harboring Herman and since a very judged it. But there's like. There's like two USC's in eleven years there's like one Misch again there's like you know I mean it's like other powers. There's like maybe one Auburn in there there's an LSU in there you know and and so. He you don't get some sort of hometown discount you know they loved O'Dell Beckham junior they didn't give him because he went and eights months ahead of them you know. So they don't have an anti OC biased and even if they know everything about these guys. You know somebody is arrested a Leo's using not a secret. So. It it it's hard you know it's it's mostly coincidental but yet disaffected OC is pumping so much good town to lead you'd figure one of these guys gonna want him to new lows but they're not gonna drive to knows he player. Because he's an hour's Mike Dayton talk all the time and it acknowledging yet for this offseason but wants needs and must greatly we hear that term a lot from Mickey and Sean. In your destinations. Have you broken down it's too in that and that and a lot of thinking and what are it. Well I think the mud the number one must I think uses of pass rushing defense of the other side Cameron Jordan had to say that for the third year road even though they got to get a kick out a couple years ago. It's such a must that I think they might even. I want to think about spending all that money to have in free agency. And drastic frankly do both you can never have enough pass catchers and they haven't had enough. Coming off the edge. Then you gotta just a line backing core somewhere in free agency the draft and probably add another quarterback somewhere. Doesn't necessarily have to be in number one starter. But you definitely need another guy who's in your top three are tough for those two positions and I think the guard probably right guard right tackle whether or not. Jahri Evans or Zach Strief combat. If they do come back it'll be their last year so those are two positions that maybe become more of a draft priority. We get asserting that as we start in the future at right guard right tackle. I sort man working people kids up on not on your writings in your your endeavors online social media. They can fight alma stuff that ESP NN com's page dedicated to all the saints content there and they can vote me on Twitter at Mike Triplett. It's always fun appreciate it every day it. I steadily to a back here on double coverage WL IMF and dot com. Welcome back. Well respectable coverage. Here on DaVita BL a measurement dot com cage he's an excellent sit down with. Meg Triplett. Fighting kitchen all Christian. 121 part that I did still can listeners might about is this whole idea that the saints. Have they would get these these LSU players when they wanted them. Yes O'Dell Beckham was out of their reach but there are multiple other key players who are very good in the NFL right now. At the saints two people who are now playing over that particular players or to me it's still more about just in not having read it correct. What I what I think is going to be layers and they finally figured out she player in the in the backseat be bad. Well why can't. Yeah oh. Yeah. Well I candidates eligible to have more on was you know this I idea that he would. Dismissed that the pick lit format at eleven if you aren't there for the saints and look I would stated. Hey look he helps your offense obviously I think each helps you transition away from Lee in a couple years yet they took franchise. And litter born net and it helps easy to recreate an identity for yet. And also it helps your defense spike wrapped in a player like I mean like I think if he's there at eleven and you'll turn in the eagle pass up on them that they can't help enable. Yeah I mean yeah. You absolutely don't. I've zone that you will be the Calgary talked about after years and blows. Blows to combine out of water. JG so I've tried to or you daughter gave Rupert rules to bull question that I had and it's of no importance it's perverts in the show right now. ESP and look re it's two weeks is simple meaning any and all press. Any angle it's a big fine for story one of these two teams you get to hopefully flesh it out Nelson just don't feel I'm. The falcons have a ping pong table to justice. Yeah yeah yeah and it was said to love really bring the team together in this great body experience sounds kind of familiar right Arab leaders team in New Orleans also. Got a ping pong table Lewis. Yup yup yup it was said that really brought the team via the body to make your birdies really get along Lisa Monday when I was in there around the time they went in there really were on the ping pong table. So the question is. If you had a first who's copying him. The falcon are poorly installed before this season's start it. So what they have the players and trading and think about it back MTA that means we may never had a bag and it's yeah its. Yeah for sure and he'd be a bit and Mary sophisticated. Chart in scoring system for every player rankings is well. Okay yeah well I wonder who's copied you just like it's like. We know that your county meet with peers alike falcons news and cabbage in. The world may never. Jurors down wanna go here a double coverage that video it.
